00:06 <zombie67> pig latin about a pig flu
00:06 <XioNYC> Fine, fine.... in flew-ay entia-ay swinn-ae-ay...
00:07 <XioNYC> It's either that, or say "Oink!" when you sneeze.
00:08 <zombie67> uh, that's not pig latin
00:09 * XioNYC never could get the hang of pig latin
00:09 <XioNYC> Perhaps we should have a yokel call out "Souuieeeeeeeee" instead of having ambulance sirens.

16:34 <mw_away> thats the smallone.
16:35 <Tank_Master> how much for the big one?
16:36 <mw_away> the mid range is 400K and the super big ones top out at 1.5 million or something close.
16:37 <mw_away> coolest feature is the kind of graph they use to connect nodes and the fact that there is only one clock signal.
16:37 <Tank_Master> you got 1.5m laying around?
16:37 <Tank_Master> that could get you some serious crunching power :P

17:35 <Ageless93> because people everywhere in the world could get it and if you're a Jew or of Islamic religion, you wouldn't want to catch a flu named after an unpure animal.

17:53 <jackygrahamez> RTFM
17:53 <qnr> basically, I used to be really active under the classic, then quit due to computer problems at about the time that BOINC started. I'd like to restart, but keep my credits ... guess that's not going to happen and I'll just have to set up a new account
17:53 <jackygrahamez> whatis& RTFM
17:54 <jackygrahamez> ls
17:54 <jackygrahamez> woops
17:54 <jackygrahamez> hi
17:54 <Ageless93> @gnr, it can take a while for those emails to come in.
17:55 <qnr> Ageless93, ok, thanks - IIRC, I tried about 14 months ago with similar results (but didn't follow it up with the BOINC help or #boinc or anything). It's been about 20 hours now. I'll wait a while longer
17:55 <jackygrahamez> Ageless93 and I were discussing some ideas on managing data better...we fleshed out an idea...I typically download from a public repository and deliver to the users the input...would it be a bad idea for the users to dowload from this public repository as part of a workunit?
17:56 *** mweltin has left #boinc
17:56 <Ageless93> nah, I wasn't meaning 20 hours... just about an hour
17:56 <qnr> I'm just wondering if I used a different email address, then the email seti@home sent me was to the address that I'm trying to use...
17:56 <Ageless93> it'll send it to the email address of your account that it has in the database. If it isn't in the database, you'll get an error message
17:57 <qnr> I me if I used a different one originally - also, I meant but the email seti@home sent is the one I'm trying
17:57 <qnr> sheesh, I can
17:57 <qnr> t type for beans today
17:57 <Ageless93> lol, join the club :)
17:57 <qnr> heheh
17:58 <qnr> I don't see why they'd send it to that email address if it wasn't the correct one to use
17:58 <jackygrahamez> btw I have to thank MTughan for the help with compiling on Mac. It did the job!
17:59 <Ageless93> they do things differently at seti... but usually if the email addy isn't in the DB there's a message to that when you fill in the wrong one.
17:59 <qnr> bleagh. it's only 3,000 credits. I should just start anew, but I was kind of hoping on rejoining some teams. oh well
18:00 <Ageless93> the only other thing is, these emails are sent by either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and those tend to end up in the spam box.
18:00 <qnr> I understand
18:01 <Ageless93> i have a filter for emails from Seti, but things like that and notices that such and so wants to be my friend always end up in my spam filter in gmail...
18:01 <qnr> However, I route all of my mail through spamcop.net, and I check both my inbox and held mail (the 'SPAM folder') every 30 minutes or so
18:02 <Ageless93> perhaps that your mail goes off into that cyber-hole...
18:02 <Ageless93> hold on
18:02 <Ageless93> did you check for lower case?
18:02 <Ageless93> did you type everything in lower case, I mean?
18:03 <qnr> yes
18:04 <qnr> I'm not worried about my email being harvested, so I'm going to make a very small dump, sorry
18:04 <qnr> From: "SETI@home" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
18:04 <qnr> To: Terry Ross <email@example.com>
18:04 <qnr> Subject: Please rejoin SETI@home
18:04 <Ageless93> the DB there will store everything in lower case only, but if you then type something with upper case/lower case combo, it'll do I don't know what. also if you ever registered there with an email address that had upper case characters in it, it'll tend to ignore your email address if you fill it in in all lower case
18:05 <qnr> ^----- that made it to me fine... and I'm using the email address they used <shrug> don't know why I'm not getting a reply
18:05 <PovAddict> qnr: SETI sent you a mail telling you to rejoin, but fails to mail you the account key? :/

18:06 <Ageless93> or best email david anderson... explain it to him, perhaps that he can reactivate your email address.
18:06 <qnr> unfortunately, the drive that had my old SETI and BOINC info bit the dust, so I can't even try to grep the old password or authenticator
18:07 <PovAddict> does DA do anything with SETI other than upgrade its web code before testing it?
18:07 <Ageless93> email davea at ssl dot berkeley dot edu and explain it to him, tell what your old account is.
18:07 <qnr> ok, thanks. I'll give that a try
18:08 <Ageless93> we send people over to him who want to have their ancient 3 Classic accounts all consolidated in their BOINC account, Nic. ;)
18:08 <PovAddict> heh
18:09 <PovAddict> I guess I have a bit of a passive-agressive relationship with David :P
18:09 <Tank_Master> jack!!
18:09 <qnr> so lots of people have 3 classic? I know I do, the ones from 1999 don't show anything, just the one from 2000
18:09 <jackygrahamez> I'll ask my question again...any issued if we direct hosts to download from public repositories?
18:09 <PovAddict> jackygrahamez: huh
18:10 <Tank_Master> woot, 3 DD@H WUs!
18:10 <Tank_Master> :D
18:10 <Tank_Master> crap
18:10 <Tank_Master> one failed - cant remaine output file...
18:10 <jackygrahamez> Instead of having the workunit download a molecular file downloaded to my server, why not tell the host to download from the public repository I grab it from?
18:10 <PovAddict> nothing wrong with giving a download URL that is not in the project server; md5 hashes will make sure it's valid
18:11 <PovAddict> it does need a bit of hacking in the server code, though
18:11 <Ageless93> will it give problems with the external server, seeing it as a ddos attack?
18:11 <jackygrahamez> ok so actually write into that xml file for the workunit stored in the database?
18:12 <PovAddict> well sure, they will see a ton of downloads coming from "BOINC client" user agents and wonder WTF
18:12 <Ageless93> if all of a sudden 4,500 hosts ask that same file 24/7...
18:12 <jackygrahamez> they might think we were a bot army that's my concern
18:12 <jackygrahamez> my primary concern
18:12 <PovAddict> ask the server owner first
18:13 <jackygrahamez> good idea
18:13 <jackygrahamez> the other approach I was thinking was including a wget binary and have it download through the job file...but I gather that does not use the md5
18:13 <mikechelen> it's going to depend on the bandwidth limits on the host
18:14 <mikechelen> probably, if there are too many users downloading, they will be throttled down
18:14 <PovAddict> jackygrahamez: that gives you more complexity, less security, and same server-hitting
18:15 * PovAddict looks at the relevant part of the server code and bangs his head slowly and repeatedly against his keyboard
18:15 *** Aruzio has quit IRC
18:17 <jackygrahamez> Ageless93 do you recall the size of the RCSB repository?
18:17 <Ageless93> qwerty tattood on your head now?
18:18 <Ageless93> between 600 and 750MB
18:18 <PovAddict> :|
18:18 <PovAddict> clients will download that'
18:18 <PovAddict> ?
18:18 <jackygrahamez> are you joking?
18:18 <Ageless93> if those files we got were anything to go by, at least
18:18 <jackygrahamez> the entire database?
18:19 <jackygrahamez> all 57266 Structures
18:19 <jackygrahamez> ?
18:19 <Ageless93> checking
18:19 <mikechelen> how many clients will be downloading?
18:19 <PovAddict> clients won't need the entire DB though, will they?
18:20 <Ageless93> oh, slightly less... about 450 MB ;)
18:21 <jackygrahamez> are those compressed structures?
18:21 <PovAddict> ugh, the files send no size information
18:21 <PovAddict> the 4hhb.pdb.gz example is 110KB
18:21 <Ageless93> the only reference I could find was in german and it said someone getting it 250MB compressed... and finding out it took 420Mb in total

18:22 <Tank_Master> crap
18:22 <Tank_Master> ahh, why didnt you make it more simple? :P
18:22 <Tank_Master> thx
18:23 <PovAddict> &learn DD@H as See 'DrugDiscovery'
18:23 <Romulus> PovAddict: The operation succeeded.
18:23 <Ageless93> but jack, if the files you got are really anything to go by, it's way bigger.
18:24 <PovAddict> the whole archive is 85 gigabytes
18:24 <Ageless93> ok, I can download that .. takes a couple of minutes ;)
18:24 <Tank_Master> 85GB is nothing these days
18:25 * PovAddict continues looking at backend_lib.cpp and thinks he wouldn't do the necessary changes for free :/
18:25 <PovAddict> &boincerr -148
18:25 <Romulus> PovAddict: exec() failed
18:25 <Tank_Master> thats so helpfull....
18:25 <jackygrahamez> Well if someone provides am 85 GB repository we can hack the workunit submission to replace the url for the receptor
18:26 <Ageless93> ERR_EXEC -148
18:26 <Ageless93> BOINC cannot create a new process. Or BOINC is already running. Only one instance of BOINC can run at any time.
18:26 <PovAddict> "BOINC is already running"?
18:26 <PovAddict> this is about starting of science apps, not of BOINC itself
18:26 <Tank_Master> it was an autodock WU, the fzd2 WUs are runing fine
18:27 <Ageless93> unless teh app crashes and takes Boinc along, Bm then tries to restart the client.
18:27 <Tank_Master> I didnt see boinc crash
18:27 <Ageless93> do we ever...
18:27 <PovAddict> lately, when BOINC crashes, it's usually my fault
18:27 <Tank_Master> lol
18:27 <jackygrahamez> oh yeah the DD@H, I'm working on 7zip now anyway I'm going to ignore you guys so I can get that working
18:28 <Tank_Master> 7zip?
18:28 <Romulus> Rumor has it 7zip is a file archiver using lzma as the default compression algorithm, Tank_Master
18:28 <PovAddict> maybe it's a bad idea to run long CPDN WUs on a client I'm changing the code of
18:28 <Ageless93> ignored again :(
18:28 <Tank_Master> I dont have 7zip
18:28 <Tank_Master> oh stfu rommie
18:28 <Ageless93> it'll come with a 7zip app, TM
18:28 <Ageless93> which will unzip the data
18:28 <Tank_Master> why 7zip?
18:28 * PovAddict could do all that without ever starting a new process
18:29 <Tank_Master> windows has its own unziping capibility built in
18:29 <Ageless93> way better compression and available for all platforms, plus open source
18:29 <Ageless93> like BOINC will ever use a platform own api
18:29 <jackygrahamez> not really 7zip 7za
18:29 <Tank_Master> opensource doenst automaticly make it better :P
18:29 <jackygrahamez> 7za is LGP I belive
18:30 <Ageless93> try zipping something. then try 7zipping it.
18:30 <Ageless93> 7zip will beat it every time. Only RARing may be better
18:31 <PovAddict> LZMA SDK is public domain
18:31 <Tank_Master> I do use winrar
18:31 <PovAddict> Tank_Master: I bet money you didn't pay money for it
18:31 <Tank_Master> mostly to unpack iso files
18:31 <Tank_Master> why would I pay for it?
18:31 <Ageless93> Compression ratio in the new 7z format is 30-50% better than ratio in ZIP format.
18:31 <Tank_Master> doesnt get me anything
18:32 <PovAddict> of course, doesn't get you anything compared to pirated versions
18:32 <PovAddict> Ageless93: even more in the particular case you want to compress
18:32 <Tank_Master> I dont use the pirited versions either
18:32 <Tank_Master> I just get it from download.com
18:32 <PovAddict> Ageless93: the MGLTools zip has lots of small files, solid compression will make a huge difference even if you used zip's Deflate compression algorithm
18:34 <Ageless93> my little example on a BM I made and zipped, 7zipped and RARed:
18:34 <Ageless93> 128.072 boincmgr26.7z
18:34 <Ageless93> 149.729 boincmgr26.rar
18:34 <Ageless93> 177.320 boincmgr26.zip
18:34 <Ageless93> that's bytes
18:34 <PovAddict> single file?
18:35 <Ageless93> dictionary 64MB, word size 256, solid block size: solid
18:36 <Ageless93> it's got BM.exe and boinc.dll
18:36 *** Rookie_69 has joined #boinc
18:36 <PovAddict> Ageless93: try 7zip on this
18:36 <PovAddict> &url last --with zip
18:37 <jackygrahamez> sounds like we are making an info-mercial for 7zip
18:38 <Tank_Master> jack...
18:38 <Tank_Master> how long are these WUs to take?
18:38 <Ageless93> lol... aren't you glad I told you about it a year ago?
18:38 <Tank_Master> app 1.02, fzd2
18:38 <jackygrahamez> that depends if I set ga=10 or ga=1
18:38 <Tank_Master> 10
18:39 <jackygrahamez> for every ga I would give it 8 minutes
18:39 <Tank_Master> ok
18:39 <jackygrahamez> so 10 would be 120 minutes
18:39 <PovAddict> wouldn't that be 80?
18:39 <jackygrahamez> I can't add
18:39 <Tank_Master> ok
18:39 <PovAddict> o_o
18:39 <Tank_Master> been 30 min
18:39 <Tank_Master> on my atom
18:40 <PovAddict> no progress reporting?
18:40 <jackygrahamez> 1 hour 20 minutes that's what I meant
18:40 <Tank_Master> pov = its always displaying 66.6%
18:40 <jackygrahamez> you have to write that into the app right?
18:40 <Ageless93> sorry.. downloaded it, decompressed it, am now recompressing
18:40 <jackygrahamez> using api?
18:41 <jackygrahamez> i gave up on that way back
18:41 <Tank_Master> lol
18:41 <jackygrahamez> just trying to get the frigin thing to work
18:41 <Ageless93> before it's weekend
18:41 * PovAddict wrote a custom validator test program
18:41 <Tank_Master> these longer WUs will be nice... will keep me busy longer

18:47 <jackygrahamez> ok after compressing these files I get access deined in Windows
18:47 <jackygrahamez> Only doing windows right now
18:49 <jackygrahamez> time will come when I trim down this python some more
18:50 <Romulus> New news from boinc: BOINC news May 1, 2009
18:50 <Ageless93> if we can compress it by 215%...
18:51 <jackygrahamez> so how do I keep the execute privileges...it was not an issue when I used the zip format
18:52 <PovAddict> windows has no notion of "execute privileges"
18:52 <Ageless93> the decompressing works?
18:53 <CoderForLife> Vista has no notion of letting anything execute
18:53 <jackygrahamez> If you open properties for the file and go to security, you will find a checkbox. When I look at that checkbox for python it was unchecked
18:54 <jackygrahamez> once checked, it executes
18:54 <PovAddict> and neither zip nor 7zip have a notion of any kind of permissions
18:54 <PovAddict> unlike tar, which keeps Unix permissions (but doesn't understand Windows ACLs)
18:55 *** PieSpyRom has joined #boinc
18:55 <jackygrahamez> When I prepared this archive, I unziped it then I used 7za all on the linux box...maybe I should prepare it in windows
18:58 <jackygrahamez> anybody investing in Purell?
18:58 * PovAddict doesn't invest
18:59 <Rookie_69> I only seem to invest in Labatt and exxon.
19:02 <Ageless93> isn't labatt canadian?
19:02 <Rookie_69> As am I.

19:02 <jackygrahamez> can Labatt cure swine flu?
19:03 <Ageless93> ok, going to restart work at Hydrogen.
19:04 * PovAddict still getting CPDN credits, good
19:04 <xcamel> good idea with mw going 'cudafied' and not giving out normal work anymore
19:04 <PovAddict> is that sarcasm?
19:05 <xcamel> no
19:07 <xcamel> Hydrogen running again?
19:08 <Ageless93> hydrogen is running again

19:10 <Tank_Master> comp has been attached to hydrogen for over a week, and the comp has also been idle
19:10 <Ageless93> backing off unnoticed for 4 hours again
19:10 <Tank_Master> yet it never requested work
19:11 <Tank_Master> from hydrogen
19:11 <Ageless93> so you missed out on all the good work
19:11 <Tank_Master> basicly
19:11 <Ageless93> well, there's work now. Just got 4 myself

19:11 <Romulus> PovAddict: The operation succeeded.
19:11 <Tank_Master> why wouldnt iy request work?
19:11 <Ageless93> ask DA.. I gave his email address earlier. :P
19:11 <Tank_Master> got 2 WUs here
19:12 <Tank_Master> lol
19:12 <PovAddict> I got no h2 work here
19:12 <PovAddict> ok now I did
19:12 <Tank_Master> man, that pisses me off
19:12 <Ageless93> if you're deferring for 24 hours... easily done within 24 hours... you only ask work once a day at that specific time
19:12 <Tank_Master> coulda been runing all day yesterday on just hydrogen
19:12 <Tank_Master> it wasnt defering at all
19:12 <Ageless93> and if there is work 3 seconds before that and 5 thereafter, but not when you ask, you're deferred for 24 hours...
19:12 <Tank_Master> just sat there
19:13 <Ageless93> it's silently backing off.
19:13 <Ageless93> I hate it as well
19:13 <Tank_Master> 24h is to long
19:13 <Ageless93> 24 hours is stupid as a number
19:13 <Tank_Master> 1h should be the max
19:13 <PovAddict> whoa that's a lot of 10MB files
19:13 <Ageless93> 23 or 25 is better if you want to back off, then you have variation when asking for work
19:14 <Ageless93> Nick: about 100MB
19:14 <Ageless93> see why we want 7zip? ;)
19:14 <PovAddict> I see just five 9.6MB app files
19:14 <PovAddict> oh, plus 200-300KB .pdb files
19:14 <Ageless93> yeah, I probably have some leftover old apps around. But consitently 99.x Mb on both machines
19:16 <PovAddict> those 10MBs add up
19:16 <jackygrahamez> we may be trimming down these apps in the future
19:16 <PovAddict> I'm at 46MB already
19:16 <jackygrahamez> need to dedicate more research to what application files are necessary
19:16 <PovAddict> for hydrogen app, are they all python?
19:17 <jackygrahamez> rats access denied again
19:17 <xcamel> that is a tad large..
19:17 <PovAddict> yeah well, that could be one thing to do to lower size: each 9MB app includes a whole copy of the python interpreter inside...
19:18 <jackygrahamez> the MGLToolsPckgs were written in python they are used to prep workunits and results

20:04 <Ageless93> thinking about that, why are we cancelling 2 when max errors is 5?
20:05 <PovAddict> what's wrong with sending a 6th when max errors is 5?
20:06 <Ageless93> isn't that overkill?
20:06 <PovAddict> did you get 5 errors and it generated a 6th result?
20:06 <Ageless93> that's the thing... checking into that.
20:08 <Ageless93> initial 3 sent 11:16:51-54
20:08 <PovAddict> what's the WU ID?
20:09 <Ageless93> 4th at 11;56:43, 5th at 13;12:44 and 6th at 14;32:25
20:09 <Ageless93> 565944
20:10 <PovAddict> the problem there is the 'total result' count
20:10 <PovAddict> it shouldn't have generated a 6th if the *total* result count was 5
20:10 <PovAddict> oh, I guess it reached 3 errors sooner than that...
20:11 <Ageless93> http://hydrogenathome.org/workunit.php?wuid=565934 shows us cancelling 2
20:12 <Ageless93> so why is it then cancelling 2 if we haven't reached max 5 errors yet?
20:13 <Ageless93> min quorum 3, target results 3, max error results 3, max total results 5, max success results 5
20:14 <Ageless93> ah, I misread that. max error is 3.
20:14 <Ageless93> max total is 5. still.. even then we shouldn't send out a 6th, or cancel 2

20:18 <Ageless93> sorry I messed up everyone's sleep in this channel. I didn't consider a transitioner question a development question.
20:20 <Rookie_69> Sleep... That's what I'm missing.

21:31 <Ageless93> and I can still taste it.
21:32 <PovAddict> lol
21:32 <Ageless93> didn't matter what I ate, smoked or drank.

22:54 <jasong> I want to google the word "atom" but suppress words like atomic. Could someone tell me how to do that, please?
22:54 <PovAddict> oh I wish
22:54 <PovAddict> what I hate the most of Google is when it puts Spanish results first
22:54 <PovAddict> for programming-related stuff, that means lower-quality stuff first -.-
22:55 <jasong> Did you notice what I wrote just now? :)
22:55 <PovAddict> there's also something impossible to search on Google: information about COM (Component Object Model)
22:55 <PovAddict> jasong: yes... that's why I'm replying
22:55 <PovAddict> I wish I knew how to search "atom" without "atomic"
22:55 <jasong> k :)
22:56 <jasong> damn
22:56 <PovAddict> that's Google trying to be smart instead of doing what you tell it to do
22:56 <jasong> hmmm would -atom* work?
22:56 <PovAddict> seriously, try to search for COM, see what results you get
22:56 <jasong> I'm afraid to attempt it
22:56 <PovAddict> &google COM
22:56 <Romulus> PovAddict: Error: Unexpected error from Google; please report this to the Supybot developers.
22:56 <PovAddict> ah yes, that one search doesn't seem to work on Romulus
22:57 <jasong> Wasn't there a search engine that used and/or/not type code?
22:57 <PovAddict> Google does...
22:57 <PovAddict> you can search for: atom -atomic
22:57 <jasong> hmmmm, I'll have to experiment
22:57 <PovAddict> you can search for: atom (cpu OR processor)
22:57 <jasong> what about atom -atom*
22:57 <jasong> ahhh, there we go
22:57 <PovAddict> but no, I don't think what you're asking is directly possible
22:57 <jasong> thanks
23:00 <jasong> lol, too bad we don't have insiders that can get someone to make a good board that'll take a few Atoms and a few graphics cards on one board, with empty slots allowed for expanding
23:01 <jasong> I've heard of, but never seen, boards that can take 4 quad cores
23:01 <jasong> Not really sure where you go for those
23:04 *** Nickuwo has joined #boinc
23:05 <Nickuwo> let say hypothetically that I need to execute create_work 10 million times... should i do it with C, perl, or bash?
23:05 <Nickuwo> bash = too slow?
23:05 <PovAddict> for 10 million I'd suggest C
23:05 <PovAddict> bash is slow yes, but that's not the problem
23:05 <Nickuwo> right on
23:05 <Nickuwo> no?
23:05 <PovAddict> the problem is the create_work *tool* makes a lot of things that you can avoid if you use the C API
23:06 <jasong> Is 300 celsius and 540 Fahrenheit near each other? I'm trying to figure out if my hypothetical Atom farm could burn the house down, those two numbers were given for the burning point of wood
23:06 <Nickuwo> ok
23:06 <PovAddict> such as the inherent and unavoidable problem that it reconnects to the DB for every workunit
23:06 <Nickuwo> hmm
23:06 <PovAddict> and that it will re-parse the workunit template every time
23:06 <Nickuwo> thats not efficient
23:06 * jasong will come back later
23:06 <Nickuwo> hehe
23:06 <PovAddict> because once it creates the workunit, the program quits, it can't keep any state
23:06 <Nickuwo> ah yes
23:06 <PovAddict> then bash runs it again
23:07 <PovAddict> and it has to connect to the DB, parse the template, etc
23:07 <Nickuwo> jasong: formula is something like 5/9x +32
23:07 <Nickuwo> makes sense
23:07 <jasong> thanks
23:07 <PovAddict> &math convert 540 F to C
23:07 <Romulus> PovAddict: 282.222222222
23:07 <Nickuwo> fancy
23:07 <PovAddict> there you go, 300C and 282C
23:08 <jasong> thanks pov
